Been better...

Postby mkelly » Fri Apr 29, 2011 10:42 pm

I moved to Australia almost a year ago from North America, so I could be with my partner of five years. He lived with me there for a couple of years, and it's my turn now to come over here to be with him.

It's been really hard adjusting, I don't get to see my family often (been three years since I've seen my brother and sister), I haven't kept in contact with my friends, I've been getting myself into silly trouble here, and I work in a high drama atmosphere. Needless to say, before I moved over here I was close to the weight I had been a year earlier (my goal weight now), but since being here I have gained quite a bit of it back.

Really, you all should see my collection of workout DVDs, self help books, and exercise equipment. But, I rarely use it... so, I can't say I don't have the resources, it all comes down to the fact that I'm unhappy and eating my emotions. I don't really know what to do now, I tried the whole "just get off your bum and do it" it works for awhile, but then I get bored. My healthy eating and exercise stints normally last about 2 - 4 weeks, then something or someone sets me off and I'm spiralling down again...

Is anyone else in the same situation? Any suggestions?

How are you doing now? Well, I think, you just have to keep yourself busy so you can overcome being homesick and sadness. That's natural, of course but don't resort to food all the time. You might regret it at the end. :D
